See, I can prove it, I did run the UBC Duathlon!
This race report is turning into a little bit of a story….
I decided to race the UBC duathlon race, a little last minute. Like the day/night before, over a glass of coffee/wine with my friends. It’s a story that makes me smile. It basically goes like this, “If you want to do something, just get out there and do it!” So one week after the eventi marathon, I found myself smiling at the start line of the UBC Duathlon and thinking, “I’d really like to win this race.” So, that’s what I did. And they seem to have lost my results. I can’t believe that the first time that I ever win a race, they lose my results. Torbin says I came in zero-th, that’s better than 1st! [laugh] Fortunately, the race photographer will help me prove that I was there. And, yet there’s more to the story.
Unfortunately, I didn’t really get around to telling everyone (including my new coach) about these last minute plans. Worse then that, I emailed Coach Calvin with a question about my Sunday training plan. Then, I happily scrapped the plan to head out to the races. At the finish line, I was standing there chit chatting when Calvin came up. It was pretty funny. We had a good shout out of, “Whoops!” and “You are so BUSTED!” I tried to turn my number around to the back, and say, “I don’t know how I got here.” It was some good laughter.
I had a really good time this weekend. I enjoyed participating, seeing everyone, chatting in transition, reserving the LETC rack, racing, laughing at “BUSTED”, and all of it. I do hope they find my results, though. They were good.
